HBR Mini Rollup for Windows 2000 Professional
1. What is it?
HBR Mini Rollup is a roll-up style package which contains almost all so called hotfixes (by request) available for Windows 2000 Professional. Server version hotfixes are not included in this package. HBR stands for "hotfix (by request)".
2. The following updates are included:
3. Which hotfixes (by request) are not included?
KB822834 - Server hotfix
KB823658 - Server hotfix
KB838018 - Front Page Extensions; Server only but if you use it on a W2k Pro system then you should install it separately
KB906952 - Server hotfix
KB896414 - problematic hotfix (uses HFSVCPACK_SW1 instead of HF folder)
KB925783 - Server hotfix
4. What is the purpose of this Rollup?
The main reason for making this HBR Rollup is to simplify the process of slipstreaming hotfixes by using HFSLIP. This Rollup can be put directly into the HF folder. You do not have to and should not slipstream any of the hotfixes listed in point 2 because they are already included in this Rollup.
The other reason is that in order to download a hotfix (by request) you have to input your e-mail address, rewrite a random code, download the hotfix from an URL sent on your e-mail address and use a password to unpack the file with the hotfix so it takes a lot of time to download all of them.
5. Technical information
The filename of HBR Rollup is Windows2000-KB932590-v2-x86-ENU.exe. KB932590 is the last hotfix (by request) released by Microsoft. HBR Rollup uses its filename and its catalog file too. Catalog files from the rest of the integrated hotfixes are also registered when installing this Rollup.
KB915985-v2 is made by BlackWingCat and contains a modified ntdll.dll file. The rest of the integrated updates are the official ones from Microsoft.
The URL temporary removed as the new version is coming soon
